Wetzel's Pretzels Making its Debut at Toronto Union Station

November 30, 2023 // Franchising.com // TORONTO, ON - The aroma of freshly baked pretzels is about to weave its way into the hustle and bustle of Toronto’s Union Station as Wetzel’s Pretzels embarks on an epic journey into Ontario.

“We are excited to add Wetzel’s Pretzels to the portfolio of MTY Brands to develop in Canada,” said David Worts, EVP of Development for MTY Canada. “We have been able to leverage the synergies of the Wetzel’s brand with our experience and expertise in the Canadian market. This is an example of how the acquisition of Wetzel’s last December is already creating additional value for Wetzel’s and MTY.”

Its architectural beauty and historical significance make it a prominent landmark in the heart of city, making pretzels a convenient and enjoyable snacking experience for those going to and from Toronto.

“I have been in Toronto’s food scene for over 10 years, so bringing Wetzel’s into Toronto was a big achievement of mine and the brands,” said Bruce Lui, franchisee of Wetzel’s in Toronto Union Station. “With Wetzel’s as my new business endeavor, I really wanted to tap into the local catering and snacking phenomenon that Wetzel’s has already established as a brand. This strategic opening aligns with my dedication to introducing innovative and appealing street-originated food concepts to my local community. I anticipate further expansion in Canada along with my dedicated team.”

Wetzel's passion for ‘bringing pretzels to the people’ extends beyond traditional mall settings, encompassing airports, stadiums, food trucks, convenience stores, and major retailers like Walmart and Macy's, opening various revenue streams for franchisees. Known for its soft pretzels, Wetzel's menu blends time-tested classics with fresh offerings.

“We couldn’t be more confident in Bruce’s ability to thrive in Toronto,” said Jon Fischer, Head of Development at Wetzel’s. “Bruce is a fantastic example of the dedicated, high-quality operators we’re looking for both domestically and internationally. As we reach new pretzel enthusiasts, we’re eager to see the positive response from the community and reach more people in this market.”
